Discover Boysen State Park

Wide open spaces await you in central Wyoming. When the busyness of life becomes too much, hop in your campervan rental and head to the Cowboy State. Midway between Thermopolis and Riverton, just an hour south of Worland rests Boysen State Park. You’ll think yourself a cowboy or cowgirl out on the western plains when you see the big sky out in Shoshoni.

In 1908, European settler Asmus Boysen built the original dam to power the 710-kilowatt power plant. This created the Boysen Reservoir, which is a popular destination for anglers and water sport enthusiasts. Less than 20 years later, the plant flooded and was forced to shut down. In 1951, a new plant was built, and five years later, the surrounding area was named a state park.

If relaxation is your goal, if seclusion and vast open spaces are what you need, Boysen State Park is the place to be. It's a prime destination for locals and visitors alike. Get your RV camping trip started by booking an RV in Fremont County.

Getting Outdoors

The main draw of the park is Boysen Reservoir. Anglers at Boysen State Park come back time and time again for the fantastic fishing. Whether it's warm-weather fishing or ice fishing, you’ll be sure to find a wide variety of fish ready to be caught. Mountain whitefish, lake trout, stonecat, crappie, rainbow and brown trout, largemouth bass, and bluegill are just a few of the fish that roam these waters. There's also a large selection of non-game fish living in the reservoir as well, including sand shiners, flathead minnows, and carp.

Are the kids in your camp feeling ready for an adventure? This park is equipped with geocaching. Geocaching is a treasure hunting activity that uses the GPS on your phone as a map to lead you around the park. The map shows you special places where previous adventurers have hidden their prizes, so you can start your own quest. This is a fun way for young Boysen State Park campers to explore the park.

Wildlife viewing at Boysen State Park is really nice due to the limited human interaction and seclusion of the area. Bring a pair of binoculars or your camera and see all the local wildlife that lives here. Deer, antelope, reptiles, bighorn sheep, and waterfowl are a few animals you’ll find. The park also offers hunting of small game animals and upland birds as long as the hunting takes place 400 yards away from the facilities and campground areas.

Camping at Boysen State Park

As you might expect, with seclusion comes a lack of certain home comforts. There are four campgrounds with around 234 campsites available for Boysen State Park campers, none of which have electrical, water, or sewer hookups. However, you'll find a water spigot and dump station for motorhome campers to dispose of their waste. There aren’t any public showers, but the campsites offer big-rig access and pull-through sites. Vault toilets are also available.

If you need Wi-Fi, you’re out of luck, but most cell phone providers have service in the area. If your service is poor and you need access to a phone, the park has public phones available for its visitors. Boysen State Park is best enjoyed unplugged so as campers can enjoy the natural wonders of the surrounding world.

Exploring the Area

Is there a budding paleontologist camping with you? If so, you’ll have to head up to Thermopolis to visit the Wyoming Dinosaur Center. There are tons of displays, dioramas, and even mounted skeletons for you to see. Learn all about the titanic creatures that roamed Wyoming millions of years ago. This museum is guaranteed fun for all ages.

Or take the scenic route and visit the Wind River Canyon. There are over 20 scenic byways to drive down in Wyoming, and the Wind River Canyon byway goes right past the park. With the Owl Creek Mountains surrounding the road and the crisp blue river below, you will be hard-pressed to find a more impressive drive. Just take Route 20 from Shoshoni to Thermopolis, a breathtaking 34-mile drive.

If you happen to be camping at Boysen State Park in the summertime, keep an eye on the calendar. You might just be able to catch the Riverton Rendezvous and Balloon Rally. Select days between June and July, Riverton has community events that lead up to the highly anticipated balloon launch. This time-honored tradition results in hundreds of hot-air balloons being sent off into the skies — a colorful spectacle that amazes crowds and makes happy memories.

When it's time to pack up and leave Boysen State Park, it won’t be too much trouble getting out. Boysen is right off of Highway 20. Be cautious, though, as the nearest gas stations are located near Highway 26, which is around 20 minutes away. You'll find more places to refuel your motorhome rental between 30 and 45 minutes away, down near Arapahoe.
